Radiator Cleaning

Why Is It Important To Keep Your Radiator Clean?

Keeping your radiator clean and free from dust is a surefire way to maintain efficiency and ensure that you are making the most of the radiator you have.

Blocking off any convection current that helps to transfer the heat around your space will only lead to higher fuel costs and a colder room.

It is therefore very important to regularly clean your radiator and make sure that it is working at its optimum level.

Allergies

It’s also very important to consider the issues that may arise for anyone that suffers with asthma and/or other types of respiratory conditions.

Radiators will accumulate a lot of dust over time – as it is drawn up from the carpet and the surrounding room by convection currents – this can lead to the same dust being released into the atmosphere of the room and may contribute to irritating pre-existing conditions.

Investing in a radiator brush can help. They are relatively inexpensive and only need to be used once a week or so.

Simply place a sheet or a towel under your radiator to catch the dust and push the brush into the spaces down the back and in-between your radiator, ensuring that all of the dust has been removed.

Spraying your radiator with a polish after this process will help to keep it more dust-free, but you will have to brush again in a few weeks time.

The good thing about spraying like this is that your room will also have a nice fresh polish smell when you next turn your radiator on.
